A version control system for software originally created for Linux development by Linus Torvalds. Noted for its branching flexibility, which allows separate branches to be created for testing new ideas, Git is a distributed system that keeps a repository with complete version history in every directory. Git functions are activated by text commands such as git add and git commit. See GitHub and version control.
